After weeks of intense eliminations and dance battles, the Colegio San Agustin (CSA) Dance Troupe emerged as the best high school dance crew in Metro Manila and was named the first grand champion of the MYX Moves Streetdance Competition during the grand finals held in SM City SkyDome last Sunday (Oct 23).
As the grand champ, the CSA DT took home a total of P150,000 in cash prize— P100,000 for winning the grand showdown and another P50,000 for winning the Co-Ed division, where the crew beat Fort Bonifacio High School’s Contemporary Danzza and School of St. Anthony’s DanSSA.
Following CSA DT is second placer School of the Holy Spirit’s Aglaia and third placer Marist School’s Marist High Impact, which both took home P50,000 as winners in their respective divisions.
SHS Aglaia brought the house down in the All Girls Division and dominated over rivals Dominican College San Juan’s Dance Troupe and St. Paul College Pasig’s Terpsichore.
Likewise, the boys of Marist School dropped the hottest grooves in the All Boys Division and beat Xavier School’s Dance X and Ateneo De Manila High School’s IndAK.
Meanwhile, out of a hundred thousand netizens who voted, Trisha Martin of the Dominican College Dance Troupe garnered a total of 13,816 votes, hailing her as the MYX Supreme Mover.
From 14 high school dance crews in the semi-finals, the MYX Moves Streetdance Competition trimmed them down to the top 9 groups that competed in the Division Finals. Winners in each division then competed in the grand finals where the metro’s best high school dance crew was finally named.
Burdened with the task to pick which team stood out among the rest were judges MJ Arda from A Team, Lema Diaz from the Philippine All-Stars, and Jon Supan from the Maneuvers.
The program, hosted by MYX VJs Tippy, Alex, and Ai, were also graced by performances from Bela Padilla, Loisa Andalio, Maris Racal, and VJs Jairus and Sharlene.
Watch out next year as the metro’s best high school dance crews once again battle it out in the MYX Moves Street Dance Competition.
